Post-Game: Phillies 6 Mets 5
May 3, 2009 (MetsBlog delivered by Newstex ) --

The Mets (10-13) lost to the Phillies (12-10) by the score of 6-to-5 tonight in 10 innings at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

For a full recap and boxscore, go to?

The least you should know?Oliver Perez was putrid again today, allowing four runs on five hits and SIX walks over 2.1 IP. Perezs is ERA is now 9.97. It could be worse, just ask Chien Ming Wang. Any chance the Mets could put Ollie in a witness protection program the next three years? I here Buffalo is a nice place to live. Sean Green did his best Kenny Rogers impersonation by walking Shane Victorino with the base loaded in the 10th inning to force home the game winning run. Id rather see Victorno hit a grand slam than be walked. Ken Takahashi looked steady in his 2.2 innings of work. Daniel Murphy was 1-for-2 with his second homerun in as many games. Carlos Delgado walked as pinch hitter in the eighth inning.Other Thoughts?Sean Green cursed himself by wearing number 48 during spring training. After looking weary versus the Nationals on Wednesday, J.J. Putz looked strong for the second consecutive day in relief, striking out two in his two innings of work. Carlos Beltran continues to rake, going 2-for-5, but with runners on first and third and one out in the top of the tenth, he grounded into a inning-ending double play. If Pedro Feliciano continues to give up homeruns to left-handed batters, can he continued to be called a left-handed specialist?The Mets and Phillies play the rubber game of their three-game series tomorrow afternoon, with John Maine facing Joe Blanton, starting at 1:05 p.m.Newstex ID: 34612680
